  • I don't turn it off :)
  • The problem with video (esp. 4K) is it will quickly expose the weakest link in the chain - you need fast disks (SSD), as much memory as possible, a powerful graphics card and of course a decent ...
  • Not as a matter of policy. Generally if I revisit an image, I like to work with the RAW afresh. Having said that I do keep an archive of every assignment as supplied to the client (either as jpg or ...
  • I think the point is that after 2.5 elapsed hours of shooting, you change the battery. End of story. Don't worry about how much of that time your camera was actually using battery power ... you ...
  • Well I use DSTE batteries as my 3rd party - have been without a problem for 3 years now. They claim to be 2100mAh (16 wh). I've not made any scientifc comparison, but they appear to last longer ...
  • Easily removed yourself if you prefer bare metal
  • Ditto - in fact the only one I had a problem with was an Oly original which swelled up. To be honest I not sure any comparison of DSLR/mirrorless battery life is particularly useful. To start with, ...
  • Yes - in fact I knew a couple of people who would actually take sandpaper to a new camera to give it a worn look! I don't mind at all honorable battle scars - in fact I was a liitle disappointed ...
  • But m4/3 is using power whenever it's on to a much greater extent than a DSLR (assuming you're not taking special precautions). On my Canon 5D3, for example, I knew I was good for around 1k frames ...
  • True, but from pretty much continuous shooting sessions, with no special care taken to conserve the battery, I can count on 2.5 hours. And that's the figure I use to determine the number of spares ...
  • You have to consider that Olympus really had to provide a PDAF solution of some kind in order to placate (somewhat) all the loyal 43 system owners who were feeling abandoned by Olympus dropping ...
  • Replied in Chrome books
    Big fan of Chromebooks, but you'll need to pay decent money to get one with a good screen for editing. I don't think the original Google Chromebook meets that criteria, though my son's Toshiba has ...
  • Yes, I use Amazon (which for me is 'free' since I have a Prime account). As I was already in the practice of converting RAWs to DNG, I've been able to upload all my images to Amazon (approx 4tb). T ...
  • Any of them. Pros choose the camera that will do the job they need to get done. Bottom line is that any m43 camera is capable of producing "professional" results. If size and weight is an issue, ...
  • I shoot on the water a lot so this is an ever present problem for me! And yes that standard lens cloths are hopeless at sponging up water (they just tend to spread it around). So I do it in 2 stages. ...
  • I've been using Bridge for ... well ever since there was Bridge. Everytime there's a new LightRoom release I think, well perhaps I should give it another go - but always end up back with Bridge. I' ...
  • I agree with Jacques - with one caveat ... use of an image on the cover of a book is normally deemed as advertising (as would definitely be the case if the cover of the book is used in catalogues, ...
  • Given your market is local, I would avoid using an offshore supplier. The hassles involved with currency exchange, postage costs ... and what about returns for damaged prints? Too many things to ...
  • That's not quite right (or ambigously worded). In the UK there is no mechanism to copyright your image because copyright automatically belongs to the creator of intellectual property, whether or ...
  • Look, I'm not saying all cameras should be the same, nor that Panny/Oly are producing poor products. I'm simply saying that harping on about an m43 "standard" is misleading. It is not any more a ...
